Tracy Lawrence Enlists Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw for Duets Album
Tracy Lawrence is hard at work on his next record, and this time he'll be enlisting the help of several friends.
In a recent interview, Lawrence tells the Boot that his forthcoming project, the first in four years, will be a duets album and feature some of his famous friends including Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean and Justin Moore, among others.
“I’m excited about this! It’s gonna be a fun project,” Lawrence says. “We’re doing a duets album of nine of my old hits and one new song, and I’m doing it with some of my friends in the business, like McGraw and Aldean and Justin Moore, Dustin Lynch, Easton Corbin, Chris Young, Kellie Pickler. I let all my friends pick their favorite Tracy Lawrence song.”
While Lawrence won't reveal which song each artist selected, he did promise that the album will include “a lot of the big corner pieces of my career.” Lawrence rose to fame in the '90s after signing with Atlantic Records in 1991. He went on to release his debut album Sticks and Stones later that year, which featured his first No. 1 hit "Sticks and Stones." He'd follow with a slew of No. 1 songs including "Alibis," "Can't Break It to My Heart," "My Second Home," "If the Good Die Young" and "Texas Tornado," among others.
“I think some of the music from our era, from ’89 to ’96, was some of the best country music ever,” Lawrence says. “Like Ronnie Dunn and Mark Chesnutt and Joe Diffie and Clint Black. Most of the guys from that era, I’m still a fan of. I still think that music holds up really well, even 20 and 30 years later.”
